Info Sessions for Pretty SIC Living Spaces

An inside view of the old St. Hilda’s House

The Convent on 113th and Wallach 2C will be available for Special Interest Communities and “other populations with specific needs” come this fall, so it’s time for applications. The Convent is newly renovated, so we’re talking hardwood floors, a multi-purpose room in the basement, a full kitchen, two RAs, a Public Safety guard, and other amenities. Columbia will ready the 11-person Wallach suite this summer, which will include the usual kitchen and common area, as well as a meeting space.

Community Development is holding information sessions on the 14th floor of Broadway Hall today from 7:30-8:30pm and tomorrow from 10:30-11:30 am. New and existing SICs, any student groups (like ABC, SGB, CI, and Club Sports), or programs “with administrative oversight”  are welcome to apply. The spaces, however, will not be open to Greek organizations. Applications are due by noon on January 28, and the lucky groups will be notified on February 6 by a committee consisting of staff members from the Office of Residential Programs and Housing Services and six undergrads.

    @yo bro, i’m in a frat, pike, to be exact, and i just believe that I have more rights than anyone else, and i am better than you lameass fuckin nerds. All the best livin spaces:mine. Your girlfriend’s vagina:mine. Answer keys to all the tests in the class: fuckin mine bitch. Whenever the administration doesn’t give me exactly what I want, be it housing, or preference in money allocation, I usually piss and moan and bitch, blame gay people and rattle on about the two community service projects I did all year, one of which was smiling at Children in Harlem. And i get what I want. Cause I contribute more to Columbia than you do, and i have better connections than you do, you lonely ass nerd bitches.

      @Anonymous I’m sorry, but did AEPi already lose the War On Fun? Oh, that’s right. The war isn’t even over yet. In fact, it’s only halftime. Does not having a house at halftime count as a loss? Is that what you’re saying? Because if you’re saying that I can assure you that you’re wrong. Why would you make this post when the War on Fun is still on? AEPi is still recruiting right now and they’ve had the best pledges in the IFC for how many years now? They’re competing with one of the worst sororities on campus who just happen to have gotten a house because they’re feeding off the energy of getting two new sororities. But you know what? They still fucking suck. AEPi is one of the best fucking frats in the IFC, they got 35 pledges last year and would of won Chapter of the Year if the council wasn’t so biased. Maybe you should shut the fuck up before you make retarded posts like this. You know why? Because you’re going to be embarrassed when AEPi gets their house back and someone bumps this post. Oh look at that, AXO just got a four-star ranking when they needed to get five, just like Lambda did. Are you a fucking drunk? Are you retarded? Are you autistic? You are a fucking idiot and you should never make a comment on Bwog again and I’m fucking serious. I almost have a feeling you’re the only guy making all these anti-frat posts because you’re a faggot hater who doesn’t like Greek life because they have such amazing social lives. Fuck you, be good at something in YOUR life and then maybe try to troll these fucking frats on Bwog, like I give a fuck. It’s so easy to spot out your comments now, you’re a retard. Always doing stupid shit like this. Why don’t you try to be a good Bwog commenter? Just for once? For once in your fucking life try not to make a post like this. That’s just you, you’re always right at getting it wrong. Fuck you. You are nothing.”

    @Anonymous Scott Helfrich’s info sessions are never announced far enough in advance.

    He is also a very frustrating human being.

    What should Bwog's new tagline be?
